Providing Outstanding Education, Excellence in Research, and Service to the Public and Other Health Professions
The Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmaceutical Sciences (PPPS) is one of five academic departments within the College of Pharmacy and is located in Duluth, Minnesota. Our multidisciplinary faculty is comprised of basic, clinical, social, and behavioral scientists with expertise in both pharmaceutical sciences and practice. Faculty and students are involved in collaborative efforts with medical school and nursing school colleagues. Both elements support Our Mission:
"We are dedicated to continuously improving interdisciplinary pharmaceutical care education, research, practice and service focused on the health and well-being of underserved, rural, and indigenous communities."
Our Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program educates students to become pharmacists who are generalist pharmacy practitioners and prepares them to identify, resolve and prevent drug related problems. Pharmacy students at the University of Minnesota learn to provide patient care to achieve positive drug therapy outcomes that improve the quality of patients’ lives.
PPPS faculty are involved in the following graduate programs:
- Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology
